 Welcome to Year 3!

What is inside the human body? 



We have had another fantastic week learning about the body in Year 3 - we now know the three layers of the skin and the three main functions of the skeleton!


A huge thank you to all of our wonderful children for thoroughly demonstrating all of the positive behaviours we expect at Barley Hill, and for working so hard on their learning, on Thursday 2nd May when we had our 'special visitors'! We are super proud of you all!


We look forward to our next fun week of learning! 


The Year 3 Team. 


Homework & Spellings



We will be focusing on measures; any work at home on measures including money would be fantastic! 


In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! On Wednesdays (fortnightly) your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday. 


Writing (We love writing!)

Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text.

BIG Write and the BIG Talk!

Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
